Got this e-mail from the Astham and Allergy Foundation of New England:

If you are concerned, as we are, about making sure that every school has a
school nurse, please try to attend this special day at the State House on
Beacon Hill on Monday, April 28, 9:30 -11:00 a.m. There will be speakers
(including one of our support group leaders) and an opportunity to visit your
legislator. If you can, please let me know if you can attend (possibly with
some support group friends).

School Health Day at the State House on Beacon Hill

Join us to promote the Health of Massachusetts students through improved
School Health and Nursing services - and try to prevent school nursing
positions from being cut.!

Monday, April 28, 2003
9:00 A.M. to 11:30 A.M.
Nurses Hall
State House
Boston

The Massachusetts School Nursing Services Collaborative works toward securing
state funding for school health services. On Monday, April 28, 2003 at the
State House we are launching our Fiscal Year 2004 budget effort to protect
school health funding from possible budget cuts and increase state resources
for school health and nursing services in more schools across the
Commonwealth. We invite school nurses, parents, and colleagues to join us on
that day, to thank legislators for their past support of school health
funding, and to ask them to level fund school health/school nursing services
in the FY 2004 state budget. On behalf of the school children of
Massachusetts and the school nurses who deliver care to an increasingly
medically complex population of students, we hope that you will join us on
April 28.

For more information please call the collaborative at 508-877-8035 or
